Country star Kenny Chesney will make Target Field a stop on his "No Shoes Nation" tour on July 12, the Twins announced on Thursday. It'll be one year after he and Tim McGraw headlined the first concert at the ballpark. More than 42,500 fans attended that show – and afterward the grass was mostly OK.

Tickets for the Target Field concert will go on sale to the general public on Dec. 7 at 10 a.m. CT, the press release says. On that day, tickets can be purchased exclusively online at www.twinsbaseball.com/concerts.

An exclusive pre-sale for all new and renewed Twins' season ticket holders is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 4.

The Twins will have plenty of time to clean up. The team will be on the road during the concert and won't return to Target Field until seven days after the show.
